Veterans Affairs: Final access audit of VA medical centers
More than 6 million appointments are currently scheduled at Veterans Affairs facilities across the country, according to an audit released Monday. Though 96% of those are set to take place in the next 30 days, new patients often wait weeks or months for a first appointment. Another 57,436 new patients have waited more than 90 days to schedule appointments, and 63,869 who enrolled in the system over the last decade have yet to be seen. The documents posted here provide a variety of wait-time measures for 141 VA healthcare systems as well as overviews of the situation nationally and in Southern California.
